28 June 2019 | Local News
The frequencies that were suspended on 3 June will be restored effective from 1 July, while Air Namibia's normal schedule will be completely restored in between three to four weeks.
Air Namibia spokesperson Paul Nakawa said since 3 June, flight frequencies on the Windhoek-Johannesburg route have been one rotation per day or seven rotations per week. Effective from 1 July these will increase to 14 rotations that will be operated on the route weekly.
“We will maintain two flights per day to Cape Town, while flights to Luanda in Angola will remain suspended until further notice,” said Air Namibia interim CEO Xavier Masule.
According to Nakawa an Airbus A319-100, which was undergoing a heavy maintenance check in Cyprus, will be ferried to Johannesburg this coming weekend for final maintenance checks.
It is expected to re-enter service a week thereafter. Further flights will be re-introduced and details will be communicated in due course, he said.
“We would like to extend our appreciation and thanks to all our corporate and leisure customers, as well as other passengers, for their continued business support during this most challenging time. We also thank sincerely the travel agents and tour operators for their continuous support,” Nakawa added.
